Question about Toshiba 14" LCD Monitor
I have a Toshiba flat-screen monitor form my home computer. (I'm at work now, so I don't have the model # handy.) A few nights ago, I turned the monitor off to save energy. When I turn it back on, the on-off switch flashes blue about every other second, but the monitor does not light up. I tried jiggling the mouse, hitting keys of the keyboard, and -- ultimately -- turning off and restarting the computer. No luck. Any ideas?
Sounds like you need a new Switch. Oxidation has probably built up in the switch. It can be fixed. Probably shop around for a certified tech who can replace it. The switch is cheap, Labor is starting around $65 - $90. You said you can faintly see the desktop. This is the invertor board inside the LCD assembly that causes this. Again if it needs to be replaced, the invertor is fairly inexpensive, labor isn't. The technician that ckecks out the laptop can determine what it needs. Yea, your right, it is a good laptop and it is worth fixing. Just a heads up, if the tech says you need a new motherboard, he's lying, find another tech.

have you tried either switching between external and internal monitor usally Fn + F5 on toshiba or try plugging a monitor into the back and see if it displays.
if you get a display on the external monitor then its probably a screen or inverter fault if you donot get a display to an external screen then it is likley t be the graphics on the board itself.
hope this helps

it sounds like a hardware problem. I would say your high voltage board that drives your lcd has blown probably the caps you buy new on-line and replace it. send to factory service to have fixed. get fixed on warranty if you have it.
please let me if I helped

1. It's a bad memory problem! (Blue Screen)
2. Try to close unneccessary processes / software using Task Manager before switching ON wireless!
3. Now, switch ON wireless.
4. If it don't work, reinstall the wireless driver!
5. Restart ur system.
tell me if it helps...tc! :)
